Curatorial Lecture
Robert Linsley

A Failed Regionalism

This talk is a draft toward the conclusion of Linsley’s book length history of art in British Columbia. He will discuss the dialectics of regionalism in contemporary art and the failure of regional discourse in Vancouver. Linsley suggests a new critical perspective on contemporary art to explain how a valid regionalism could exist. A number of well-known contemporary Vancouver artists will be discussed and in this lecture Linsley will propose a new way to evaluate their works.
